Today is a sad day for the Call of Duty community. It was reported yesterday that professional Call of Duty player Phillip “Phizzurp” Klemenov was killed in a car crash in Colorado. His car struck several trees and a lamp post.
Phillip was returning home with his girlfriend and friend when the crash occurred. No other vehicles appear to have been involved. How Philip lost control is unclear; CBS has reported that alcohol and speed were both involved, but Philip’s girlfriend denies that he was under the influence. While she survived the accident with only minor injuries, Philip’s friend died immediately in the crash, and Philip passed away a few hours later in the hospital.
Philip was only 23 years old. He will be sorely missed by his family, friends, and the entire Call of Duty streaming and e-sports community.
